10-11-12

A good day for doing things in the proper order.

Today is October 11, 2012, the first Sequence Day since September 10, 2011 and the last before January 2, 2103.

Good day for doing things in the proper order.

Update Also a good day for making silly mistakes. Obviously (per commenters) we have 11-12-13 and 12-13-14 still to go this century.

  1. Well, apparently this blog is beholden to American Exceptionalism. In Europe, the sequential day is coming in less than a month. What we consider to be 11-10-12, they write as 10-11-12. That also also means that, while we are going to have two more sequential days in the next two years, the Europeans will only have one–11-12-13. So, in this case, it seems American Exceptionalism does work, providing us with an extra piece of useless trivia.
